Through our comprehensive approach and exceptionally high standards, we are able to ensure that our customers receive a consistently superior product every time they place an order.
The Designs for Health Quality Policy results in practitioners' heightened confidence by proving that our dietary supplements exceed industry standards for quality. Our comprehensive evaluation criteria are designed to corroborate all aspects affecting quality and efficacy, specifically:
From raw material selection through manufacturing, to shipping of the finished product, Designs for Health adheres to the strictest of quality control standards. Every step of the process is thoroughly controlled and guaranteed to ensure that our customers receive consistently potent and effective nutritional supplements every time they order.
In a dedicated effort to ensure the superior quality and purity of our supplements, Designs for Health evaluates and retains documentation regarding all raw materials and finished products. In the interest of full disclosure, we make available raw material vendor Certificates of Analysis (C of As), results of independent testing to confirm C of As, and our finished product testing results. This information is available in the Product & Ingredient Disclosures section of the individual product pages within our online catalog.
Our raw material vendors are measured against criteria designed to quantify the stringent quality parameters we insist upon. We purchase our raw materials only from those vendors who are able to meet our exacting requirements.
Designs for Health maintains the following documentation requirements for raw materials:
Certificates of Analysis (C of As) : Every lot must be accompanied by comprehensive vendor-supplied documentation of the material's identity, potency, and purity.
Independent Laboratory Analysis: Providing an extra measure of quality assurance, all raw materials used in the manufacture of Designs for Health products are monitored for potential contaminants and tested for the marker compound quantities as defined on our label. Numerous analytical testing processes are employed, as applicable, including HPLC (High Pressure Liquid Chromatography) and FTIR (Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy), to name a few.
Finished Product Testing
Our quality control process does not end with C of As and raw material testing. As an additional line of assurance, each and every Designs for Health product is analyzed for finished product content to confirm that the manufacturing process has resulted in a finished product that meets label claims.
